We visited The Local for lunch, based on the recommendation of a friend. We enjoyed it very much. Food was excellent, service was excellent as well. They have a nice menu, great choice of beer and wine. We will definitely go back.

We were so happy with the atmosphere the food and the waitstaff. I had the special for the night which was Meatloaf and it was wonderful. My husband had the fish fry and said it's one of the best he's ever had. Probably the only...More

We weren't sure about going out in Saratoga on a summer track night, but this restaurant was far enough off the main drag (but still close enough to walk to kilwins for dessert after!) that it wasn't busy and parking was easy to find on...More
